Quote from: BillD53A on January 03, 2012, 05:33:23 AMThe images of rail equipment are computer generated wannabes. They were generated by a person who almost, but not quite, knew what a train looked like. Look at the pilot of the locomotive; the lower end of the coupling link does not exist. It just ends in a blob. The locomotive has an air compressor. It looks like a 55 gallon drum sitting on the walkway, with plumbing. There were no airbrakes in the 1860s so it does not belong there. The railroad's 'end of track' changed by the hour. "Hell on Wheels" was the name for the portable den of iniquity that followed the railroad's construction camp.The clerestory on the passenger car was not unusual for the time.
